A cutting-edge quantitative approach to understanding hydro-mechanical processes behind rainfall-induced landslides, for graduate students, researchers and professionals.
The handbook details the MoSSaiC (Management of Slope Stability in Communities) methodology, which aims to create behavioral change in vulnerable communities in developing countries. Focusing on maximizing within-country capacity to deliver landslide mitigation measures on the ground, it provides an end-to-end blueprint for the mitigation process.
Of interest to both the theoretical modeling community and to the field researcher, it explores the major hydrological processes encountered in the field, in the laboratory and through computer modeling. As such, the text is seen as a major contribution in the search for initiatives linking hillslope hydrology modeling, field methods for parameterization and new conceptualization based on field observation. Among the many topics covered are: vegetation and hydroclimate, determination of hydraulic soil properties, soil water hysteresis, surface sealing and infiltration, overland flow and erosion, hydrogeochemistry of snow and snowmelt, subsurface runoff, solute transport in soils and runoff production in peat-covered catchments. Each chapter provides state of the art discussions and indicates areas where further research is needed.
Das Auxin Indol-3-essigsaure (IES) ist an nahezu allen pflanzlichen Entwicklungsprozessen beteiligt. Die Phytohormongruppe der Octadecanoide (OPDA, Jasmonsaure) spielt eine besondere Rolle bei der Stressantwort. Die vorliegende Arbeit beschreibt die Mechanismen einer Octadecanoid-gesteuerten Auxinbiosynthese uber YUC8 und YUC9, regulatorische Ruckkopplungsmoglichkeiten sowie die Einordnung in den physiologischen Kontext des pflanzlichen Entwicklungs- und Abwehrverhaltens anhand genetischer und molekularbiologischer Studien. Dabei liefert diese Arbeit neue Hypothesen zur kooperativen Wirkung von Octadecanoiden, Auxin und Ethylen in planta. Die Analysen erfolgten unter anderem mit konstitutiven und induzierbaren Uberexpressionssystemen, Nullmutanten (aos/opr3, coi1, yuc8/yuc9), Promotor-Reportergenlinien, gewebespezifischen und entwicklungsabhangigen Transkriptquantifizierungen, proteinbiochemischen Methoden, GC-MS/MS-Messungen, subzellularen GFP-Lokalisationen und weiteren Untersuchungen. Mathias Hentrich studierte an der Ruhr-Universitat Bochum und promovierte am dortigen Lehrstuhl fur Pflanzenphysiologie als Stipendiat der Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes in der Projektgruppe von Prof. Dr. S. Pollmann. Die hier veroffentlichte Promotion wurde mit dem Gesamtpradikat summa cum laude bewertet.
This book aims to assist in choosing ecotechnological solutions for slopes that are prone to a variety of mass movements e.g. shallow failure or erosion. The book reviews the types of problematic slopes that may occur and describes briefly the nature of mass movements and the causes of these movements. There is focus on the use of vegetation to stabilize soil on slopes prone to mass movements. The book also introduces new ecotechnological methods, and case studies are discussed.
